  1. Can you please share the link to register for TANCET 2016 online? I didnot find any notification in anna university website.

    • Hi,

      Since the notification is not out yet, we can’t really say that candidates not belonging to Tamil Nadu can write TANCET or not. But if we go by some of the previous year’s nativity criteria, the Indian Nationals w ho have studied 5 years continuously (from XI Standard onw ards) in Tamil Nadu will be considered as Tamil Nadu candidates and can apply for the test. Candidates who are Native of Tamil Nadu but have studied XI, XII or and Degree out side Tamil Nadu will be required to produce a Nativity Certificate from the Tehsildar of their Native Taluka/District of Tamil Nadu for considering them as Tamil Nadu Candidate. Other State candidates who have studied 5 years continuously in Tamil Nadu (who have Studied XI and XII (H.S.C) and degree course) will be considered under open category and can apply for TANCET.

      Ps. – We are again saying the criteria stated here is old. It may remain same this year too or can change. Wait for the official brochure and notification to be out to know the fee structure and all.

      Hope this will help. Comment further in case of any more doubts.

    • Hi,

      Yes, you can appear for TANCET 2016. But since you are not having domicile of Tamil Nadu state, take a note that admission in the TN state colleges will be granted solely on the discretion of its authorities. They may or may not allow admission to other state students that too on fulfillment of certain eligibility conditions. They may give preference to TN state candidates over other state candidates but you must give it a try. There will be many colleges which will welcome candidates belonging to other states. Hurry up, last date to apply for TANCET is 21 May.
